Creating your wedding registry can be exciting but also stressful and overwhelming. You might be the couple that isn’t interested in the traditional wedding registry like crockpots and place settings, or if you’ve lived together you just might not need these traditional items. We’ve put together a list of places to create your out of the ordinary wedding registry.
- Travelers Joy – If you and your fiancé already have an idea or plan of what you’re doing for your honeymoon, then travelersjoy.com may be a place you want to register. You build your registry with your anticipated honeymoon activities and experiences, which your guests can then contribute towards. Request the money when you’re ready and they’ll send you a bank check or have it wired.
- REI – If you and your future spouse are an outdoorsy couple then REI would be a great place to register. It may be time to update your tent for camping, or get that paddle board you’ve always wanted.
- Etsy– An online shop that supports small privately owned businesses with thousands of handcrafted, handmade items for your home and everyday life. (This is also a great place to get personalized items made for the big day!)
- My Registry – Universal wedding registries are becoming more common. This is a registry that combines items from most major registry locations. One of the best parts of this registry is that you can register at Home Depot. If you’re in the process of buying a home, or you are planning on it in the future, then you know you’ll be there frequently. You can register for appliances, lawnmowers or anything else Home Depot has to offer. You may want to ask your future spouse on this one.
- Zola – Another universal wedding registry, however here you can register for the traditional items as well as other things like massages and even Blue Apron. Blue Apron is a company that sends pre-portioned, ready to cook meals each week. Your guests can buy you a month subscription. You then have a list of recipes for the week that you can chose from and based on your subscription, pick through an assortment of meals and they ship them right to your door, ready to cook. How easy is that?!
- ThirstyNest – A registry where you can register for items like wine and spirits and even drink-ware and bar furniture. If you’re looking to start a bar in your home or even build up your wine stock, this may be the place for you.
If you’ve been living together for a while, you may want to upgrade to better or newer options of some household items. Some people are old school and want to buy you the traditional gifts so adding some items along those lines will be appreciated by your guests. If you need some ideas on what else to register for be sure to ask your wedding planner!
